Nostalgic For Bill
Did you see the Big Dog's speech tonight? If not, you missed out. Certainly one of the best convention speeches I remember seeing. Even NewsMax hasn't found anything bad to say about it yet. Here's the best they've managed to come up with:
Ex-President Bill Clinton wowed the Democratic Convention crowd at Boston's Fleet Center Monday night with a carefully crafted attack on President Bush's policies.
But his wife's much ballyhooed introduction, which became a bone of contention last week when she was left off the prime-time speaker's list, fell flat.
Hehe. Wonder where they found that...
That's was the assessment from Fox News Channel's Fred Barnes, who noted the contrast between the Clintons' two speeches.
This was definitely a strong night for the Democrats - including a powerful testimony of Kerry's service in Vietnam from former swift boat crewmember Rev. David Alston, some great Gore humor, and Jimmy Carter taking the gloves off.
"What a difference these few months of extremism have made," former President Jimmy Carter said during a speech in which he never uttered the president's name.
"The United States has alienated its allies, dismayed its friends and inadvertently gratified its enemies by proclaiming a confused and disturbing strategy of pre-emptive war.
"In the world at large, we cannot lead if our leaders mislead."
Definitely looking forward to tomorrow...
